    Carry on; nothing new here

    Shrimping on Sat 6-22; tried a 'new to me' spot around the Culross area; ran a string of 3, but with a bear skull in 1st pot. Upon pulling, bear skull was in middle pot, and no shrimp to be found. Guess I should be happy they didn't cut the rope or steal the pots too.... Just irritating to...

    Valdez Scouts trip 6/18 to 6/23

    I was fortunate enough to be invited to take some young men involved with the Boy Scouts out fishing. I had never been fishing out of Valdez, but was excited to prospect new waters. I made some inquiries and received some direction, but still felt I was flying blind. Some of the boys had never...

    Proud papa [emoji3]

    After posting a couple pics in the 2017 pic thread, I needed to post a follow up. The story begins almost two years ago when my son, daughter and I each applied for DG346 (Seward Alaska Resurrection Peninsula). February 2016, my daughter was lucky enough to draw. Her expectations were high...

    PWS Black Bears

    Was flipping thru the new hunting regs booklet and noticed that PWS Black Bears goes to Registration for the '15-'16 season. Considering all of the thoughts and actions generated on this board; it seems like a good compromise in my opinion. Hope the change does what they intend it to do. - Gambler

    Speaking of Christmas Presents . . . .

    I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post this, but with all of its traffic, I figured this would be my best shot. I have a good friend from the Lower 48 and while visiting him last September on an elk hunt, he related his story of his first trip to Alaska. It sounded like quite an...
